•    Name

•    Company

•    Job Title

•    Postal address

•    Email address

•    Phone number

•    Credit or debit card information (which is processed by a third-party processor)

•    Any other information or data that you provide and is identified with you personally

 

We may also retain the details of purchases and other transactions or payments made with us on our Site in order to provide you with a more streamlined experience.

We may also collect the following information:

  • Website usage data.
  • Demographic information, such as zip/postal code, preferences and interests.
  • Name, company, job title, contact information (including email address), via contact form submittals or registrations for Site accounts.
  • Other information relevant to business inquiries.

Any PII you provide is voluntary or is necessary for the identified purposes for which it is to be used.  You have no obligation to provide the information requested on any Sheffer form, but the failure to do so can impact Sheffer’s ability to process your transaction or consider or respond to your request, question, or other communication.

How we use data

Sheffer takes your privacy very seriously. Accordingly, we agree that we will only use the information you provide for the following specific purposes: to effectuate a registration made by you; to customize the advertising and content you see; to process and fulfill your purchases; to improve the content and overall look and feel of our Site and products; to respond to your inquiries or requests for information; and to provide you promotional messages, surveys, and targeted advertising, if you have opted in to receive it.  Collecting website data helps us understand what visitors are looking from the company, enabling us to deliver an improved customer experience.

We agree that we will not share, sell, rent, or otherwise distribute your PII with outside parties, except to provide products or services you’ve requested through us or to suppliers performing services for us, including for example, companies that host our data services, process payments, deliver communications on our behalf, fulfill our programs, operate apps or plug-ins on our behalf, or perform analytics (as described below).

We may also provide your PII in response to a validly-issued subpoena, court order, or other legal process, or when necessary to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims made by you or on your behalf.  Our affiliates and third-party providers use any such PII and data you have provided in accordance with this Policy, may need PII to perform their functions, and may use this PII to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you (unless you have opted out of receiving it).  These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.

From time to time, we may employ the use of return email addresses to answer the email we receive from you.  Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Finally, we agree that we will never use or share the PII provided to us by you in any way that violates or is otherwise unrelated to the means described in this Policy, without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Cookies and how we use them

A cookie is a small segment of code placed on a browsing device. It enables our website to identify a device, as a visitor views different pages.

Cookies allow websites to store visitor preferences in order to present content, options or functions that are specific to the visitor. They also enable us to see information like how many visitors use the website and what pages they tend to visit.

We may use cookies to:

  • Analyze web traffic using an analytics program. Aggregated usage data helps us improve the website structure, design, content and functions.
  • Store information about visitor
  • Recognize when visitors return to our website. We may show visitors relevant content, or provide functionality that was used previously.

Cookies do not provide us with access to an individual’s device or any PII about users, other than that which visitors choose to share with us.

Visitors can use their browser’s cookie settings to determine how our website uses cookies. If a visitor does not want our website to store cookies on their device, they may set their web browser to refuse cookies. However, please note that doing this may affect how our website functions. Some pages and services may become unavailable. Unless a visitor has changed their browser to refuse cookies, our website will issue cookies when visited.

Web Statistics & Shared Data

We collect and use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad aggregate demographic information for reporting and sponsorship purposes. IP addresses are not linked to PII.

From time to time, we may use non-identifiable aggregate information to better design our Site and to share with select advertising partners, sponsors, and/or affiliates. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our Site, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to personally identify those individuals.

Analytics

We may partner with third-party suppliers to engage in analytics, analysis, auditing, measurement, research, and reporting, including without limitation based on PII or other data collected over time, such as through your activity on the Site.  We may use and share your data in individual format, so long as it does not identify you, or in the aggregate for the analytics purposes as described herein. Our third-party suppliers may use various tracking tools, such as web logs or pixel tags, cookies, or other technology on your device or browser.  For example, we may use third-party services to collect and help us analyze certain information as described in this Policy.

Data Security

While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third-party interception or other misuse (for example, e-mail sent to or from our Site may not be secure), Sheffer uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your PII from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have established appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to us. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 13, nor do we allow registration of users under the age of 13.  If you are under 13, DO NOT give us any PII.  If you have reason to believe that a child has provided PII to Sheffer, contact us at [email protected], and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that information from our databases.

California – Additional Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code Section 1798.83, allows California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of PII to third parties for direct marketing purposes. Please contact us at [email protected] to request information as permitted by California law.  When contacting us, please indicate your name, address, email address, and details regarding your specific request, such as the PII you do not want us to share with suppliers, affiliates, or third parties. The request should be sent to us at [email protected] or to our mailing address set forth herein, Attn: Privacy, and labeled “California Customer Choice Notice.”  Please allow 30 days for a response. Also, please note that there is no charge for controlling the sharing of your PII or requesting this notice.

Scope of this Agreement; Third-Party Websites
